An NQT copes with a busy day at the start of her induction year Helen Fuller is an English NQT at the City Academy, Bristol. We follow her throughout a busy day covering the start of a brand new module ‘War and Conflict’ with a top set Year 9 class. In her mentor meeting at the end of the day, Helen considers what was a challenging lesson, and gets advice on how to deal with their behaviour issues in the future. At the end of the day we see Helen cooking at home with her husband and reflecting on her day and what the she wants from the future.
This is the first instalment of a three part series documenting a year in the life of an NQT. We see Helen at home as well as school, juggling professional and personal life in her first year as a teacher.
